This article will help show how to eat smarter to stay healthy. I am researching out food and found good things in fresh food that has some shelf life which is good for the winter months.
Did you know one of the most popular, best known vegetables, famous for bringing tears to your eyes; is one of the best sources for anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants than any other food source? Red onions get their bite from the many sulfur groups they contain. It is the sulfur that makes you cry when you cut them.
The More You Cry the Better the Onion.
According to my numerous herbal, homeopathy, and holistic nutrition informative sources, the vegetable that brings tears to your eyes is literally packed with beneficial compounds. Famous for its pungent and bitey flavor, the inexpensive Onion is literally packed with anti-inflammatory antioxidants. These antioxidants are flavonoid called Quercetin. The Red or yellow Onion also contain Sulfur. It is the Sulfur in the onion that makes you cry. The more pungent the onion is, the higher its antioxidant value. Therefore the mild, sweet, or white onion (the one that causes no tears) lacks these compounds. The smellier the onion, the better it is for you.
